MOSCOW, November 18. /TASS/. Russia will not take part in the Miss Universe beauty pageant this year, director of the Miss Russia contest Anastasia Belyak said on Monday after a press conference held at TASS.

"This year, unfortunately, the organizers of the Miss Universe pageant have announced the dates and location of the final too late. We planned that [Miss Russia 2019 winner] Alina Sanko will take part in two contests: Miss World and Miss Universe. This year, the contests are overlapping: one will take place on December 8, the other on the 14th [of December]. We found that out less than a month ago. We are not going, because the organizers informed us too late," she told TASS.

One of the prizes of Miss Russia 2019 is the ability to take part in Miss World and Miss Universe. According to Belyak, Sanko does not have enough time to get a US visa and prepare for the Miss Universe pageant. "We wish that such a large-scale event would inform of the details of its organization with time to spare," she lamented.

Winner of Miss Russia 2019 Alina Sanko will take part in the Miss World pageant on December 14. Miss World is the oldest international beauty pageant held since 1951.

Miss Universe is held every year since 1952. This year, it will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, from November 28 to December 8.

What a shame. Reason #537 why MUO/IMG needs to get it together and announce the date and location of the pageant way in advance.

[> Subject: Wonderfully worded. MUO really needs to get their act together. Its truly unfair for countries to be unable to attend because theyre informed too late to get visas.

[> Subject: This is disgusting. If only Donald Trump could be the owner again. IMG is running the MUO in the ground & I have a bad feeling itll be a continuous downward spiral. IMG need to get their shit together. Theyre so lackadaisical in every aspect of the MUO.

[> [> Subject: If you read correctly the contest is overlapping with Miss World . They are simply choosing Miss World over MU . Stop finding a reason to bash IMG YALL.

Read closely . There is no way she could have done both even with a visa

[> [> [> Subject: I did read correctly. Perhaps you didn't. The problem is that IMG was too late in announcing a date for Miss Universe. Therefore, Russia was unable to send their delegate to both pageants. Had IMG announced a date earlier, perhaps they would've selected a date that didn't coincide with Miss World.
